I received 2 emails from them - the link from "Application Received" email works. The one from "Application in Review" is dead.
Has anyone applied for the faculty scholars and heard back?
Does anyone know if scholarship awards are given in the formal acceptance packet the status checker said would be mailed to us 2-4 days after acceptance or does it come separately in February?
21:55
Has anybody heard back from Pepperdine? Been under review for over a month
@SlipperySubduedCalf: accepted in Dec and still no scholarship info
13:13
@FaithfulSubduedElemental: I've applied but have heard nothing... same with regular scholarship info
my app got moved into review today
im assuming im about to get graped by the firewall
I applied 01/08 and just moved to under review
Has anyone been getting emails but their status checker isn't updating? I got an email saying it went UR but my SC still says "application complete."
same ^
it took about a month before mine switched to in review after they sent the email
I think they lost my app, its been since early november
Yo are they ever gonna send scholarship info or nah
they said “mid february”
16:23
I called the other day and they said the middle of this week
16:24
For anyone applying for Faculty Scholars they already know the results, and I believe scholarship amount -- they wouldn't tell me exact amount but did give me faculty scholar results
